Teppanyaki Grow Ueno

Teppanyaki Grow is a restaurant with 3 locations in Tokyo, specializing in teppan (iron plate) cuisine of A5 aged wagyu beef.

Introduced in this article is the popular Ueno location. The nearest station is Yushima, and it is also within a 7 to 10-minute walk from either Ueno station and Okachimachi station.

Teppanyaki experience

Teppanyaki is more than just enjoying delicious meat, it's also about seeing the chef cooking your meal, dish by dish, on the large iron grill. This is why we recommend that you take a counter seat if you can. There are six of them at the Ueno location, along with 14 table seats.

You can order a la carte or have one of the courses that are around ¥8,000.
The dinner courses are mainly about A5 (highest rank) wagyu beef! Even the sushi served as an entree is meat sushi.
On top of being top-quality wagyu, the meat is aged to further increase its taste and texture. Ageing means here that it was kept in a strictly controlled environment for a few days in order to let the natural enzymes of the meat break down the muscle tissue. This makes the meat more tender and gives it deeper tasting umami.
Teppan cuisine is moslty associated with beef, but it actually consist of anything cooked on that iron grill. This includes some delicious seafood, so if you're more of a seafood person than a meat person, you might want to try the 'isei ebi' (Japanese spiny lobster) at Grow; it's particularly well-known and liked.

Wagyu lunch from ¥1,000

From 11:45 to 14:00, you can enjoy a surprisingly affordable lunch at Grow. The most popular item is the ¥1,000 wagyu Hamburg steak, a succulent thick beef patty served with a dipping sauce and some side dishes.
